Get Excited for Reading!

My students need books! We have no books for our classroom.

My Students

My students are resilient. Our school moved buildings at the beginning of the year. Things did not go as smoothly as it could have due to a delay in the moving date and the start of the school year. Even though our school is still not completely organized, the students have adjusted and tried to succeed to the best of their ability. I want to be able to give these hard workers something that is needed, new, and fresh. Lets get them excited for reading!

My Project

I am currently a 7th and 8th grade teacher that will be moving down to 1st grade for the 2017-2018 school year. As you can imagine, I have no materials that I can bring with me that are age appropriate. We are starting new with everything!

One of the most important aspects of 1st grade is to excel in reading.

I want to have a classroom library that is appropriate for the range of students that I will have. The books cannot be just any books. They must be targeted towards their reading level which will have familiar and not-so-familiar words in them. Most of all, I want my students to be excited about reading!

The books in which I have selected are perfect for my students. The students that will be in first grade next year are reading at a variety of levels consisting of kindergarten to forth grade. The leveled books will be wonderful to have the students read and continue to push their progress along.
